Thank God you're OK! I'm glad that it wasn't worse. I hope that you take it easy and get all healed up. We'll be here when you get back.

You had me wincing and squirming all the way over here. Very, very glad to hear they will mend up fine and you're only out a couple of weeks and not a whole bunch of vision.

I am glad you will heal and all will be well. I have injured my eyes several times over the past year....they are definitely not something to take for granted....I am super careful about wearing eye protection when grinding, spraying, etc.

 

Again GLAD you will be okay!! Thank goodness you had good care too!!

Glad all is going to be OK. Safety is too often taken for granted.  Go rest and get those eyes taken care of.

It seems that an eye injury hurts worse than any other. Take care of yourself so it doesn't get infected

The one eye drop is an antibiotic for that purpose. Yes they do, doc said more nerve endings there than any part of the body.

 

 

Thank you everyone for the well wishes. I have no doubt that someone was watching over me on thursday. It most definately could have been much worse.

Glad you are OK. Eyes heal quick. You never know when stuff like that is gonna happen. Last time I got an abraised cornea I had sefety sunglasses on a granny strap. I had just taken them off to see better in the shade to trim tree limbs

Very glad to hear all will heal proper.  Yes, it is scary when our eyesight is involved in accidents.  Been there with eye issues a few times, and very painful & unsettling!
